Stayed in the Davenport Hotel last Saturday night and I must say was pleasantly surprised as we got it cheap and weren't sure what to expect. Its a very central hotel and this makes it a great attraction especially at the weekends but despite the fact that it was very busy, it was very quite and very clean. The staff were welcoming and the lobby inviting. The room was well laid out and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well equipped. Breakfast was served until 11 which was nice as you could have a sleep in. There was a slight issue in that we had no lights in the morning and the room did not have natural light it proved a bit awkward and on check out the receptionist didn't seem too surprised or bothered. That was the only drawback.

The hotel is in an ideal location for visiting the city. It is within walking distance of the central shopping district and many of the main sites to visit. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The lunch menu in the bar was great. Possibly the most comfortable hotel beds we've come across!

Staying here at the moment and rooms ok and atmosphere ok , the thing that is so so so very annoying is the internet. Completely random and different information of how to hook up depending on who you talk to. Slept very well and if i had been on holiday would have been ok but for a business traveller stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Didn't know there was a swimming pool or spa. As a business traveller would choose somewhere whe...

Very nice hotel. Near the center, while not in the rush. Near Trinity College. The staff is very helpfull, friendly, with a very fine sense of humor. I just did not want to check out. I was 3 nights, beds are realy comfortable, the rooms are a bit shabby, but are cozy. Room service is excellent - fast and tasty. If a have to say something negative these are the taps in the bathroom - separate - very old-fashioned.

We received an excellent service from all staff in the hotel. Once we arrived to there, the staff were extremely helpful, helped us with our bags and gave us directions around Dublin City. From start to finish, the staff made sure our stay was going to be very enjoyable, Our suite was divine, very luxurious & elegant and made our night away so relaxing. The breakfast the next morning was perfect. The location is excellent. We walked around the city, there was no need for other transport. I would definitely return here again.

Very convenient location. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Were only there 2 nights, but enjoyed pints in the bar both nights. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
We walked to and from hotel and all the attractions in Downtown Dublin. Staff was very helpful in setting up early morning airport shuttle service. Nothing extravagant, but for a clean, safe and great location at a good price, it is hard to beat!

Myself and my Husband stayed in the Davenport Hotel on the 15th November 2013 for 2 nights.We had a great weekend and the Davenport Hotel was excellent. The bedrooms were great very comfortable bed and an excellent Shower. The staff were extremely Friendly and helpful. If I had anything negative to say would be the decor of the bar could do with refurbishing but on the overall we had a lovely stay. The Location of the Hotel is Great walking distance from Grafton Street. I would highly recommended the Davenport if visiting Dublin
